Camel Milk Tea

Camel milk is the staple food for camel herders.

In the day milk and camel-milk-tea are the answers to hunger and thirst. And in the night a “ kheer” – somewhat like porridge – made with sugar, flour and camel milk are eaten as dinner.

Watch a video on milking the camel on youtube here: LINK

Making the fire for the tea:

Here’s the link to the video on Youtube of creating the sustainable fire.

And the boiling of the milk: link:

And finally the tea:

This tea is consumed several times a day. I did not witness the drinking of water as much … maybe the milk alone is sufficient.

At night, a ‘kheer’ is made using camel milk, sugar and flour.

Same utensils. Same fuel. Same camel milk. So a small bag of basic ingredients lasts a few days.

    I remember that and netted bags over the camels utters so the babies don’t drink to much. Water was so scarce we gave them some from the car radiator

    Wow! Would love to see pictures of the netted bags if you have any. Yes water is scarce – but did you not worry about getting stuck with a bad radiator? I watched them clean up the tea vessels with sand and was surprised by how clean the vessels came out.
